We don’t take this trust lightly and we put all of the resources necessary to present our client’s case in the best light possible.

The fortunate citizens of Montgomery County have access to the river park on the Cumberland, Dunbar Cave, Fort Campbell and Austin Peay University. In addition to the city of Clarksville, Montgomery County also includes Bel-Air Estates, Kenwood, New Providence, Ringgold, Ashland Hills and Park Lane.NURSING HOME NEGLECT CASES IN CLARKSVILLE
Over the years we have handled many nursing home malpractices cases in Clarksville, Tennessee and in the surrounding counties. Currently there are four nursing homes in Clarksville, Tennessee. These homes are Grace Healthcare of Clarksville, Spring Meadows Health Care Center, Signature Healthcare of Clarksville and Clarksville Manor Nursing Center. To date, our office has represented families against two of these homes. However, the terms of the settlement related to those cases are confidential.
We often find that the underlying cause of nursing home neglect is that the home is simply understaffed. If there are not enough caregivers in a home to care for the residents than many will not receive the basic care that is needed. How can you make sure everyone is feed, gets enough water, or that residents are turned to prevent bedsores if there are not enough workers in the nursing home? Unfortunately, an easy way to increase profits is to cut or underpay staff at the expense of the residents.
If you have a loved one in a Clarksville Nursing Home and suspect neglect please feel free to call us today. Remember that one of the best ways to prevent poor care is to be involved with the care of your loved one. Make sure to visit the home often and at different times.
